Contest Announcement: Treasure Hunt 2011

I have been teasing for a couple weeks now about a contest-and here it is! In 2011 I am challenging myself to buy as few new things as possible-and I am challenging you to do do the same in Green Gracious' Treasure Hunt 2011. Hopefully by now you know how buying things that have been pre-loved can help the do it for the Earth or your pocketbook, your creativity, or the love of the hunt, but please join me!

Here's how it works...

You get to rediscover your creativity and be a good steward of environmental and financial resources by treasure hunting. At the end of every month you will share your creativity, your savings, and your finds with us. For each month you participate, you receive an entry into the year-end random drawing for a fabulous treasure I have yet to discover and announce.

Contentment is a treasure in and of itself, so you don't have to buy anything new to enter. Feel free to share ways you realized you could do more with less or reuse something already in your possession. And of course, if you snag a fabulous resale deal on beautiful useful items-share them too!

I will be posting some tips and ideas as well as my top finds of 2010 in the next couple weeks and watch to link up at the end of January.

Who is with me?

When I need something... my first thought is freecycle and my favorite thrift stores! I've found that vintage isn't old... it's better made! I'm definately in! :)

I think this is a great idea! My favorite shopping spots include Goodwill, Craigslist, Freecycle, and the local Swap & Shop. Count me in!
